Illyrian city of Amantia

admin's picture
Amantia was the historical capital of the Illyrian tribe of Amanties, founded around the 5th century BCE. Its present location is near the village of Plloca in the river valley of Vlora. At its peak, Amantia featured an acropolis and a Doric style temple dedicated to Aphrodite. The most notable archaeological object among the preserved features is the stadium, measuring 60 x 12.5 meters. A significant sculptural object is the bas-relief of the God of Fertility, which can be seen at the National Historic Museum. Additional relics from Amantia are on display at the Archaeological. Today Amantia has the status of an Archaeological Park of Albania .
